p.s. You’ve been Rickrolled!

Postscript on 2/12:  Credit where credit is due. Yahoo News outed the author of this prank: “Even more impressive, the essay on scientist Niels Bohr actually makes perfect sense. It’s hard enough to write a physics essay, but we don’t even want to think about how much time it took student Sairam Gudiseva to “rickroll” his teacher.”  The site (here) defines rickrolling this way: “Going back years, rickrolling is a term for getting victims to watch Rick Astley when they least expect to. Sometimes, during a boring video, the merry prankster will cut to Astley a few minutes in and let his melodic rock crash over you like the rushing tides of the Pacific Ocean, so gentle, so free.”

Congratulations Sairam. Hope you aced it!
